Abstract: Eolian erosion of natural dust in an area of 53 ha, situated in the northern Negev Desert, is investigated in detail both in the wind tunnel (erosion simulations on a topographic scale model) and in the field. The wind tunnel results and the field results show good agreement, indicating that wind tunnel simulations of eolian dust erosion on scale models of complex topography may predict, at least to an acceptable level, the erosion-sensitive areas in a hilly landscape of nearly uniform surface roughness.
